Subject [Tomcat Wiki] Update of "ReleaseProcess" by KonstantinKolinko
Date Sat, 26 Oct 2013 23:11:08 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Tomcat Wiki" for change notification.

The "ReleaseProcess" page has been changed by KonstantinKolinko:

Add several trivial checks before tagging. Add "java.7.home" line to example

   * GnuPG installed
   * A public key that is part of the Apache web of trust
   * A reasonable internet connection (you will need to upload ~100MB)
+ == Preliminary checks ==
+  * Check that the version numbers have been incremented after the previous release, as expected.
+  * Check that the changelog file mentions your login name as release manager for this release
(e.g. "Tomcat 7.0.42 (markt)").
+  * Check whether the {{{KEYS}}} file differs from {{{}}}
one. The latter one will be replaced after you do a release. Check that the {{{KEYS}}} file
contains your public key.
  == Create the tag ==
  The aim is to create a copy of the current trunk but without the "-dev" appended to the
end of the version number.
